MEME: Saturday Seven - Episode 128

This week seemed to go by quickly, despite the fact that it had a very slow start. I hope all of my friends on the east coast are drying out after Ernesto's heavy rains. I'm just glad that it wasn't worse than it ended up being!

But first, Frida of "I Really Hate Blog Names" was first to play last week! Congratulations, Frida!

Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. You find out that you've just gotten a new job in a different state. Which room of your home will be the most difficult to get packed and why?
The library – which books come and which find new homes?
2. Which room is most likely to contain the greatest number of items that you should throw away, but haven't, yet?
Probably the bedroom closet. Not a room, but between that and the dresser, there's clothing that could go that hasn't...
3. What is your single greatest strength and single greatest weakness if you were to enter the dating scene tomorrow?
My experience and my cynicism. I see another long, dry spell ahead...

Dating Strengths Explained

Intelligence - Your sharp intellect is a valuable asset. Use your intelligence wisely; avoid condescension. Quiet, confident intelligence is very attractive.
Adventurousness - You are willing to try new things and be spontaneous. You want to get out there and really live, and you will attract people with a similar love of life.
Open-Mindedness - You are open to trying new things and entertaining new ideas, and this widens your pool of available women.
Varied Interests - You don't limit yourself, and that's a dating asset. Your varied interests make you available and interesting to a wider range of women.

Dating Weaknesses Explained

Appearance - Devoting a greater effort at making good first impressions is a must. Try to be fit and develop a style if you want to catch a woman's attention.
Insecurity - Your insecurity makes you doubt yourself, but you must learn to love and trust yourself if you want to succeed in dating.
Shyness - You know all too well the limits shyness places on you. Putting yourself out there in social situations may be difficult, but essential to your dating success.
Financial Issues - Your financial situation is not in good shape, and this does not bode well for you on the dating scene. Try to get on top of your financial difficulties.
Selfishness - You think too much of yourself and your needs. You must learn to put your partner first and tend to her needs.

Dating Strengths and Weaknesses Quiz

5. What's the biggest surprise from this quiz's findings?
How much emphasis is placed on superficial matters.
6. Would you ever go out on a blind date with someone you'd met online if you'd never talked to them through any other method than email? Sure, why not? Although, I'd really prefer to have developed a relationship via telephone rather than just email.
